16 to 19 Tuition Fund
The Department of Education announced a sum of one off funding for the academic year 2020/21 to mitigate against the disruption to learning arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. The funding is being provided to support small group tuition for students aged 16-19 and is being targeted at students who had not achieved grade 5 or above in GCSE maths and/or English by age 16. However, it is worth noting that the actual tuition does not need to be for GCSE English and/or GCSE maths.
Providers have the flexibility to decide the most appropriate approach to resourcing the delivery of small group tuition supported through the fund but should prioritise support for students who have not achieved a grade 4 in GCSE English and/or GCSE maths, as well as those students who would benefit the most from small group tuition such as those with special educational needs or disabilities.
The full guidance can be accessed here.
At Durham Sixth Form Centre, examples of some of the tuition support on offer will include:
- GCSE exam resit preparation
- Bespoke subject support/catch-up
